Does the '76 Midget have a snap on rubber accelerator pedal cover similar to the brake and clutch pedals?

I know, right? Although originally designed for heel toe acceleration / braking, a bare scuffed up acc ped always functioned as intended, but always looked unfinished from outside the car.

I solved that many years ago. I got 'em from an MGB Moss catalog. Heel toe preserved, but I think it looks cool too.

Have not had any probs with them as they are all tight.

You guys with 1500s and hanging gas pedals are a funny bunch. smiling bouncing smiley FYI for the pedal mounted on the floor of earlier cars, it wasn't painted black it was steel clad in vulcanized rubber that wasn't replaceable like the clutch and brake pedals.

David,

The old style pump organ pedal is replaceable. Moss has them available. And a lot of us have the hanging pedal in older cars - mine in the photo above for example. smileys with beer

Rick,
The replacement pedal I got from Moss is a remade original pedal that had the rubber removed and looks to then have been sand blasted and the rubber remolded on that old pedal. Nothing was done to protect the metal part from rust. Seems to me to be a rather cheaply made part.

Probably came from China pre-rusted.

Kinda the reason a decent, used pump organ pedal is the first thing I take off any Spridget I'm disassembling for parts. I've also sort of "re-vulcanized" and straightened one at home, not to much success but it worked.

Bishop, looks like your MG logo pedals are mounted via screws, correct? I like the look!

Allen screws actually. Too bad the pix isn't great. Looks a lot better than I captured.
